Home in time for Christmas - two Jamaican fisherman recover on Saturday after being lost at sea for three weeks. John Sobah and Everton Gregory had to be rescued by the Colombian navy after their engine failed on a fishing trip. The two survivived by eatng the fish they caught and drinking melted ice from their cooler. Despite the ordeal, Sobah said he didn't fret because they were in the boat and still eating - no matter what they were eating. His fishing partner, meanwhile, said he would be returning to the sea the next morning since fishing was his main livelihood. The pair, who work for a Florida based NGO, received food and medical treatment before returning to Jamaica.
